Easy mid-week Bok Choi


Bok Choi



Serves 2

1 small head Bok Choi (Chinese cabbage) coarsely chopped

1 small clove garlic (pressed)

1 tbsp toasted sesame oil

1 tbsp sesame seeds

Salt and pepper



This could not be any simpler. I don’t even bother with cooking this in stages. I literally put everything together except the sesame seeds and cook covered until softened. Just before serving, sprinkle on the sesame seeds and adjust the salt.



I usually serve generic gabapentin for dogs this as a side dish, as in the photo above, but you could easily turn it into a main meal by tossing onto a steaming bowl of brown basmati rice or quinoa or noodles, and if you’re lucky enough to still have some tamarind paste lurking, marble some into plain yogurt and place on top. Yum!!

      Glad to hear Lisa. It is widely available, both in the supermarkets and the market in town and at the road side vendors.

      Really good to hear. We had it with our Mahi Mahi last week, and with tuna in London. Obviously a good accompaniment to fish. Thanks Linda
